We don’t have to strive in our own strength to love and do good for the purpose of ticking off some religious requirement. The apostle Paul said that “God’s love has been poured out into our hearts” (Romans 5:5), and it is with this same love that we can love others. We also read that “it is God who works in us to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose” (Philippians 2:13). Even the very desire to do good comes from the Lord through his Holy Spirit. May this thought encourage us today!

— “and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:8-9 NASB https://ift.tt/2xoE1NK

It’s time for each of us and our nation to repent and turn to God.

Pray this with me, Heavenly Father, I confess that I have sinned. I acknowledge that this sin is against what your word says and therefore I repent of it right now in Jesus name! I come to your throne of grace and ask forgiveness for this sin. I place this sin on the alter and ask that the blood of Jesus be applied to this sin. Help me father God to gain the victory in this area of my life in Jesus name! I ask that you give me the unction of the Holy Spirit before I say or do anything that would offend or grieve you. I ask for forgiveness and grace in the name of Jesus! Father God I ask that you would fix the messes I have created by sin. For only you can fix the unfixable! Only you can make all things new! I ask all these things in the mighty name of Jesus, amen. https://ift.tt/2Jhb2he

“Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

These tough times can bring out the worst of people or the best. As the Church, we need to be doing the latter. Oh and let’s please do our part by staying home (if we are able to). #coronavirus #covid_19 #church #sing #dance #smile #love #give https://ift.tt/2J90UHF
